Step By Step Favors

Halloween is most certainly my favorite holiday of the year!  So creating favors for this holiday are at the top of my "to do" list!

The assembly of this is quick and easy enough for a child to make for their teacher or class mates. 

Supplies: dry adhesive, ribbon, printwork punched with a 1.75" circle punch, starburst punch, Studio 61 mini tall gusseted sacks, bat stickers, ribbon and snack sized M&M's. 

Fold the M&M wrapper to fit into the sack.  Fold the sack over at the top of M&M's.  Apply dry adhesive to the flap and fold flap to front side.

 Adhere tag and tie ribbon into a loopy bow and adhere to the front, just above tag using a glue dot. 

Doesn't get much easier than that!  :)

Here's a quick little favor using the Studio 61 little white boxes.

Supplies: dry adhesive, foam dots, ribbon, Studio 61 little white boxes, Studio 61 black circle stickers, Studio 61 mini black safety pin, Studio 61 printwork tag, Stampin Up mini slot punch and rubber spider.

Using the slot punch, punch on the box top as far as the punch will go from both sides.  Slide ribbon through slot, ending with the tails on the outside.

Tie big loopy bow.
Place stickers on the bottom part of the box, folding half the sticker to the side and half to the bottom to create a scallop.
Attach label with safety pin and place spider on foam dot before gluing on the top.

Super easy, but super cute!

Off to create more,

October's favors are done!

All that is left is writing the instructions and kitting.

Here are the four little favors we will be making on Tuesday.

This little favor is made from the new Basic Grey paperline, Studio 61 mini elastic trim and a premade label from Scrapbook Customs.

This sweet box is constructed from American Crafts be merry printed paper line, Pebbles "Merry Christmas" label, Bazzill cardstock, red tulle, black and white baker's twine and Studio 61 black circle stickers.  It's filled with wintergreen lifesavers.  It is the perfect size to tuck a gift card down into!

This little favor was created for the Make & Take at Inspiration Unlimited {IU}.  I just added a Studio 61 tag.  The Skittles are tucked into a Studio 61 gusseted crinkle bag and embellished with a bright striped paper from Pebbles.  It's a perfect sized favor for a large group and holds many of the prewrapped candies.

The last favor is a Halloween favor, also designed for the Make & Take at IU. 
These little Studio 61 mini chevron bags are an adorable size and hold a snack sized pack of M&M's perfectly.  We will be making both little sacks in class. 

There's still a few more slots left, so if you are a local gal and want to join me, sign up by calling ETC at {480}854-2303.  If you are not local, ETC can ship you a kit complete with instructions. 

Have a creative weekend,

Creating Favors

I really enjoy making favors.  I think it's because I can start and finish them quickly.  Whether I have an hour, or an entire day...I can crank them out.  It's satisfying to actually complete something!  I have so many unfinished projects.

Here's a few I made yesterday using the Studio 61 diagonal striped sacks.

I used the same method of folding down the top and tying shut with lace.  You can add a premade tag or a custom quote, or simply dangle a heart punch with a little black safety pin.  This little heart punched shape was made with the new Teresa Collins heart punch.

Here I tucked the sack into a little treat box that was created using a diagonal striped printed paper and adorable tag from Pebbles. 

Here's a miniature version of the box above, with a band of black and white polka dotted paper from Doodle Bug.  I added the circle stickers to both boxes to create a cute scalloped edge.  The big red loopy bow made of red tulle and black and white baker's twine add to the cute factor of this little box.

I have my projects ready for my upcoming Do Me A Favor workshop.  I will share some pics tomorrow.

Good nite,
